Beach Scene Fairy House



We just got back from a wonderful week long vacation.  Traveling from Kansas to sunny Mexico was a much needed change.  However, I could have easily stayed there.  The resort was wonderful, the kids had a terrific time, and the food was plenty.  We got spoiled spending each day at the beach and pool.  Speaking of the beach...this project takes me back there.  My daughter and I came up with this fun fairy house to capture the fun of the tropics.

Supplies:
One container - plastic or glass
tropical calendar or picture
plastic palm trees (found at local hobby store miniatures section)
sand
seashells
sock
miniature accessories (we used a Barbie camera and drink)


Cut the picture to fit inside the container.  We used a 2013 tropical beaches calendar.  What a great way to recycle!

Cut a sock down to create a beach towel.  We used a sock that had lost its match.  Then, add the sand, seashells and accessories to finish the fairy house.
Creating this project was a lot of fun.  Most of all, I got to spend a fun afternoon with my wonderful 10 year old.  Enjoy the simple times with your kids and create your own fairy house.
